About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Charlotte Secondary School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Charlotte Secondary School Reviews
I have really felt like I have been heard at this school. I was used to going to a very large middle school where I seemed to blend into the walls. I have made many new friends although in small schools drama seems to circulate easier! There seems to be many distractions during class, like big arguments or students throwing tantrums... My grades have improved a lot this year, but that might have to do with the fact that they treat us like kindergartners.
My Son started in the 7th grade, now in 8th. Very happy with the school and Staff. My child is also very happy, loves his Teachers and peers. Student are very accepting of each other. He did great on the EOG's. We are looking forward to Highschool with C.S.S.
I am so pleased with the education my child is getting at Charlotte Secondary. My oldest attended a traditional middle and high school in prominant South Charlotte in honors and IB classes. What I see my daughter doing at Charlotte Secondary by far exceeds anything work he did in and out of the class. While he has been successful and gone on to Chapel Hill I know the education his sister has gotten has surpassed anything he was able to get from school.While he scored in the 32 % on the ACT our daughter took it right before this year began and she scored in the top 15%. I am so pleased 8th grade hasn't even really begun.
